On August 28, female YouTuber Park Min Jung uploaded a screenshot to her Instagram Story of a direct message she received from CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun.
As seen in the screenshot, Lee Jonghyun used his verified account to contact the female YouTuber to send these messages: “I enjoy watching your YouTube videos. Please upload more fun videos.” and “Your belly fat is so cute.” The YouTuber included the caption “Huh? Is this really CNBLUE?”
People criticized him for this especially since he was involved in Jung Joon Young’s controversy and admitted to had watched inappropriate videos and had sexual conversations in the chatroom.
Netizens left comments such as “People don’t change”, “He’s making advances…”
Although he said he would be careful and reflect on his actions, people were still disappointed in him sliding a DM in the female YouTuber’s inbox. Currently, Lee Jonghyun’s account is deactivated again.
CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun is currently enlisted in the military and is expected to be discharged by March 2020.
